A Simple Life in Agusan del Norte

Port of Nasipit is the gateway of Agusan del Norte to the rest of the Philippines. I’ve been traveling back and forth in this province since my father was born and died here. I’ve been visiting this place annually during the 1st week of the 11th Month, November. Or if there are celebrations like weddings and etc.

Agusan del Norte is in CARAGA region. It doesn’t have much to offer for tourists but it has something that it can give to those who are looking for a more simpler way of enjoying the weekend or just to let the time pass by.

In Agusan del Norte, life is simple. No complications. People are generous, food and resources are abundant. You can eat three times a day and that’s it.

If you are looking for something wild, night parties and bars, shop til you drop malls; then, Agusan del Norte is not the place you are looking for. Better look for another place. But, anyway, I came here to visit my bloodline.

Since my family is from a town called Tubay. I traveled all the way from Nasipit to Cabadbaran City passing thru Butuan City which is the capital of Agusan del Norte.Traveled from the seas to the mountains to the river, it was great to enjoy a life wherein you keep on moving and witnessing the changes of sceneries outside those little window of the bus each time you passed by a town.

I love it there. You can get the freshest fishes early in the morning handed to you by the fisherman who caught it for a reasonable price or even for free.

In this province, I can say that,

“Living a life so simple is living a life harmoniously.”
